Course content

This MA programme is designed to critically examine the theoretical and methodological issues surrounding the dynamics of peace and conflict in the contemporary world. The programme engages with the work of leading peace and conflict studies scholars, at both conceptual and empirical levels, and draws on evidence from a range of recent armed conflicts.

The programme also addresses techniques in conflict resolution, such as mediation, in order to deepen your understanding, and to develop practical skills in conflict analysis. The programme also uses optional modules from Politics to support the core programme.

You will take five taught modules each assessed by a 5,000 word essay. The programme culminates in the writing of a 20,000-word dissertation in a subject area of your own choosing.

Core Modules

• Conflict Management and Contemporary Conflicts

• Theory and Methods in Postgraduate Studies

• Dissertation
